    Hello

    Read this :

    "OPatchSession cannot load inventory for the given Oracle Home <Home_Location>. Possible causes are:No read or write permission to ORACLE_HOME/.patch_storageCentral Inventory is locked by another OUI instanceNo read permission to Central InventoryThe lock file exists in ORACLE_HOME/.patch_storageThe Oracle Home does not exist in Central Inventory"

    What do I do?

    This error may occur because of any one or more of the following reasons:

    1. The ORACLE_HOME/.patch_storage may not have read/write permissions. Ensure that you give read/write permissions to this folder and apply the patch again.
    2. There may be another Oracle Universal Installer instance running. Stop it and try applying the patch again.
    3. The Central Inventory may not have read permission. Ensure that you give read permission to the Central Inventory and apply the patch again.
    4. The ORACLE_HOME/.patch_storage directory might be locked. If this directory is locked, you will find a file named patch_locked inside this directory. This may be due to a previously failed installation of a patch. To remove the lock, restore the Oracle home and remove the patch_locked file from theORACLE_HOME/.patch_storage directory. For more information on restoring the Oracle home, refer to Chapter 2, "Managing Oracle Homes".
    5. The Oracle home may not be present in the Central Inventory. This may be due to a corrupted or lost inventory or the inventory may not be registered in the Central Inventory. For more information, refer to section "Diagnosing and Recovering from Central Inventory Corruption" on page 2E14.

    Hi gopukrish,

    Error message related to permission issue's

    Please try running the CMD in adminstrative mode

    Right click on CMD-Run as administrator and try to update the Opatch file
